Unrecognized PCMCIA using FreeBSD 4.10 on Gateway Laptop.

I am having a problem with my Gateway Laptop not recognizing any PCMCIA
cards, when I display the dmesg I get the following:


pcic0: <O2micro 6912 PCI-Cardbus Bridge> irq 128 at device 2.0 on pci2

pcic0: PCI Memory allocated: 0x88000000

pcic0: No PCI interrupt routed, trying ISA.

pcic0: Polling mode

pcic0: Warning: O2micro OZ68xx chips may not work

pccard0: <PC Card 16-bit bus (classic)> on pcic0


When I insert a card I get:

pccard: card inserted, slot 0


But in the case of my netgear 802.11b MA401 it should bring up a wi0
device, but it doesn't. Same for any type of pcmcia card.


I did notice that in the man page for pcic that the 02micro 6912 is not
on the list of supported cardbus bridges and the warning that the 02
micro chips may not work well.


My question is if anyone knows the development status of the 02 micro
chip support on the pcic, or if there are any patches or workarounds?
